Old Lens for 4x5 Camera
Junk Lenses, but my favorite,
for Speed Graphic

Century-Speed Graphic Interchangable Board

I made an interchangable Board between Cenchury and Speed Graphic many years ago. I have been using it for my Graphics. It is possible to use any lenses by puting them on 63mmx63mm plate just like a Cenchury Graphic lens board. Most below's pre War lenses are able to use for both Graphic cameras. They all are not coated. Enjoy your Speed Graphic!

Tessar 150mm F4.5

I got this lens as a paper weigh because it was almost junk cost. It was looking glass and aperture so nice after cleaning. Takes good photographs but only for Speed Graphic, no shutter. It is in a herical gear. Works only on Speed Graphic because of no shutter. Made by Carl Zeiss Jena Germany.
